The Dual Globe iFusion system includes a two terminal FleetBroadband configuration, with one terminal acting as the primary communication system and the secondary terminal acting as a backup.
All external voice and data communications are controlled by the primary antenna, however if any connection loss is detected on the primary the secondary terminal antenna is used automatically for all services.
The secondary terminal also serves as a backup and can become the primary terminal in the event of primary terminal hardware failure.
Globe Wireless already had an existing relationship with KGJS prior to this deal, and the two companies have worked together to develop and evaluate the specific requirements and communication systems needed.
“Globe Wireless has been working with us, not as a supplier, but as a partner throughout this time and has demonstrated exceptional commitment and flexibility in offering us a satellite communications solution that satisfies our evolving needs,” said KGJS, in a statement.
“They were open to our ideas and had many of their own to offer. Globe Wireless’ Dual Globe iFusion solution will ensure that there is reliable, high quality broadband communications between our vessels and offices ashore.”
“In addition, Globe Wireless is meeting our bandwidth needs, along with providing a complete turnkey solution including logistics, equipment, service, support and applications. This level of support enables us to focus on our business at a more efficient level reducing our operational costs.”
